Polyurethane may take many physical forms such as foam, soft rubber, or rigid plastic. It is made by reacting a monomer containing isocyanate groups with a monomer containing alcohol groups in the presence of a catalyst. The material properties of polyurethane products are dependent on the isocyanate and the alcohol groups, and the ratios of each used during the reaction. Therefore, it is desirable to have a fast and reliable method to evaluate the accuracy of formulations as a quality assessment tool. ATR/FTIR offers such a solution.
